I was talking to a co-worker over lunch about the new TV series Commander-In-Chief starring Geena Davis & Donald Sutherland about the first woman president.

My co-worker is a super, righ-wing conspiracy nut (even more than me), and he believes that this show is a political propoganda move by ABC to try and soften up the masses in preparation for a woman president in 2008.

Incidently, after doing some cursory searching about this topic, I've also learned that some women's libbers are pissed off because this show depicts Geena Davis' character as taking office not by winning an election, but by the president having a stroke and she being the vice president.

I'd agree with that. There are tons of reports and interviews with the shows creator and writer. I have yet to confirm but I was told the producer was family friends of the Clinton's. Who knows, could just be more media bs. But here is another article where the writer states, "it's naive to think that a woman can actually do an effective job in the primaries, unfortunately, but if Hillary does win the nomination, we're going to take credit."

I've got a whole family of conservative women who cannot stand Hildabeast, and will absolutely not vote for her under any circumstance.

If it means more Geena Davis on TV, then I'm for it!

This is totally a tee up for Hiliary! Have you seen the billboards, "This fall a Woman will be President" White Billboard in written in big black letters.

I think we had this one before but it's OK it's been a little while.

This was the first thing I thought when I saw the commercial... ABC just trying to butter us up to the idea of Hillary being POTUS.

The test will be: How closely do her politics match the ones on the TV show? I wouldn't be surprised at all if they were very close.

I saw an story on Fox's Dayside when I was getting ready for work and they said Geena's character will be an independent. Not that I will watch it anyhow since I work swing shift.

So maybe we get a little indication of how they are going to try and position Hildabeast in 08.... as a moderate Dem?!?!?

Yeah, cause that would be absolutely outrageous to think that Hollyweird would do such a thing as to advance their liberal agenda. And neither would the press...

I've said it on this board a zillion times...
Hillary Clinton is unelectable!!!!!She's the blinking light on the tip of the left wing! An ultra-conservative would also be unelectable!
